The results of the project ECO-SI, a research project co-funded by the Lombardy and EU Region under the PORL FESR 2007/20013, to which Sepra participates with two Universities and four industrial partners (See attached file) has been presented at the EFF2017 - Engineering Future Food Conference organized by AIDIC, the Italian Association of Chemical Engineering, from 28th to 31st May 2017. Sepra gave a lecture presentation within the Conference.

The plant has been started on January 2015 at PLAC dairy factory. Based on pilot test work already completed, two fermentors are in operation to produce biohydrogen and biomethane on a few m3 scale. Fermentors feed is actually a lactose solution produced with ultrafiltration from skimmed whey, coming from grana padano production line. The goal is to reach maximum capacity compatible with fermentors volume. Production of biofuels is part of a more important process optimization, with the final target of 100% use of milk and full valorization of byproducts and water.
